    Hey Guys,

    [SORRY: This isn't a tutorial, it's a question -- I forgot the "?" in the subject line]

    I'm gonna try this unless you tell me outright that you know it doesn't work.

    I'm gonna straw mod, then, instead of using SM, use my AR MAX. When the disc stops spinning (when it asks me to insert a game disc), I'm going to insert the backup.

    Will this work? If not, do you know any variations of it that will work?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Ok -- but for DVDs -

    perhaps if I insert an original, but then perform another swap before the original finishes loading... (when would that be).

    I know that this is probably more convoluted than it's worth, and I DO plan on ordering SM3.3 to simplify things - I just don't haven't yet...

    I'll tinker a bit and give feed back.

    the problem with that is that the ps2 wont know you inserted an original ps2 dvd since you use the straw mod.

    yeah... figured that out...

    I tried toggling the switches on and off to suit my needs, but I couldn't get anything to jive.

    I guess I'll just order the SM discs.

    But come to think of it -- The way that Sony applied the warranty label: you can pretty much do whatever you want, and still keep the warranty intact. Seems like a pretty big "oops".

    I could screw up soldering a chip, even, and they still couldn't tell.

    Thanks for your help,
    Tim
